San Francisco's Favorite Craft Fair

The Bay Area Book Festival – June 6 & 7 – Berkeley

Civic Center Park and 12 themed blocks will open for pedestrian only use, 10AM to 6PM, in Downtown Berkeley’s Arts District, with easy access by BART and bus. Exhibitors will include publishers, indie bookstores, literary and literacy organizations, library services, writing programs, book artists, authors, and more. 150 local, national, and international authors will be reading, debating, and presenting in great spaces, both indoor and outside, throughout the Downtown Arts District, with selected venues on the UC Berkeley campus. The festival will showcase a major public art installation, dubbed the “50,000 Books Project,” a structure made of books donated by the Internet Archive and disassembled by the public on the final afternoon, when all books will be available to take for free. Related, smaller installations will be scattered throughout the festival grounds. Maker’s Lane will present DIY opportunities for people to produce books—from classic letterpress to new digital publishing platforms and displays of technologies for reading and writing. The festival is free to the public!
